The Twitter-coveting billionaire appeared to confirm their birth in a tweet, sparking renewed interest in his expanding family tree.

 “Doing my best to help the underpopulation crisis. A collapsing birth rate is the biggest danger civilization faces by far,” Musk wrote on Twitter.

That brings the tally of confirmed children for the South African-born business magnate to 10 — six with his first wife Justine Wilson, two with Claire Boucher, also known by her stage name Grimes, and the twins with Zilis.

Musk and Wilson’s first child, born in 2002, died of sudden infant death syndrome at the age of 10 weeks, according to Marie Claire.

Grimes’ second child with Musk, a daughter born through surrogacy, arrived weeks after Zilis delivered her twins.
